If Beale Street Could Talk

Review: If Beale Street Could Talk

28 Feb 19

A film that resonates with such clarity and beauty.

A film about love and kindness and hate and evil that doesn't manipulate or talk down to the audience. So much unspoken, plenty unseen. Barry Jenkins knows how to film love using all of the cinematic elements available to him. Once again a pitch perfect score that doesn't dominate but perfectly accompanies the beautiful cinematography and gentle acting. Long may he continue to make films, films that resonate with such clarity and beauty.
